Large, lead, post medieval 16th-19th century, circular cloth seal dated AD.1571. The seal has an off centre pelleted ring that contains the legend, DVYT/ COLCESTER/ BAYE/ 1571. The lower half of the date has been lost due to the off centre stamping. The reverse of the seal has two squashed lead rivets attached but is otherwise undecorated. The object has a white/grey patina of lead oxide. Seals made by the Dutch textile industry in Colchester all carried the date AD.1571, as this was when the industry was founded in the city, rather than recording the year of sealing (Egan 1992).

Lead alloy cloth seal of the Commonwealth dating from AD1657. It is a four-part or four-disc cloth seal with the following imagery: Blank // plain cross on ornate saltire // cockerel on bow-like base, 5 7 to sides // blank. Rod Blunt (via Stuart Elton), says: "The impression depicting a cock is unlikely to be from an official stamp of the Commonwealth, particularly as it had banned cock-fighting. The presence of a bow below the cock suggests that the device might be a rebus for the name 'Bowcock'. [The reverse can be described as showing...] a plain cross with a foliate ornament …

Discovered whilst metal detecting Preservation- Good Lead disc bearing picture and inscription on one side and inscription on the other. Protrusion which would have formerly been a central stem used to fasten the disc to another forming the seal. This would then have been operated by pressing both discs together. On one side there is a relief design enclosed in an oval of a man with a sheep either side of his legs, and another slung across his shoulders, with the word REGISTERED running along the outside of the left edge of the picture. The man is stood facing the 'front' whilst his…

A worn and damaged cast lead possible cloth seal of late medieval or early post-medieval date (c. 1485-c. 1700 AD). On the upper surface the object is broadly circular with some squared-off cuts. Initials are moulded in low relief at its centre: 'HR', where the 'H' is ligated with the 'R'; above is what appears to be a crown. On the other side it is too worn to discern what the decoration is, if any; this side has been cut into a sub-square shape. The object now remains light grey in colour due to the corrosion process. It has been bent in profile. It is possible that the HR refers…
